Use these 5 easy life hacks that really work!
Use ice to remove carpet indentations
Leaving that fabulous apartment for your new one? Moving your favorite piece of furniture to a new room? Don’t leave those indents in the carpet for all the world to see. Just place ice cubes into the indentations. Let it melt then vacuum them up. It’ll look at good as it did the day you turned the lights on.
Use spaghetti to light multiple candles at once
When your guests will be arriving soon and you want to fill up your home with great aromas, use spaghetti to light up your candles in more than one room. Just light the end of a piece of dry spaghetti and use this as your lighter. Great way to hand them off to friends as safe way to help you reach all those birthday candles too.
Vinegar and oil work great to remove furniture scratches
A bad scratch can leave you feeling annoyed every time you see it! Mix ½ cup of vinegar (apple cider works great) with ½ cup of canola oil. Dip a microfiber cloth in the solution, and then rub firmly on the wood surface until the scratch goes away. The oil will swell the cracks and fill them in.
Use vegetable cans as weights
Trying to get your arms in shape when you have no time to get to the gym can be super frustrating. Here’s a great tip you can do from home. Grab two cans of vegetables from your pantry and start those bicep curls and tricep extensions. They are low weight so be sure to do plenty of reps for the most benefit. You’ll be ready to show off your guns in no time!
Speaking of Vegetables………..put them where it hurts.
When you throw your back out, sprain your finger, have a weird ache, or had a little too much fun rolling in the sheets last night, an ice pack can temporarily relieve pain. No ice pack? Go in your freezer and grab a bag of frozen vegetables and use them as an ice pack. You can wrap them in a towel if the temp is too cold then put the veggies where it hurts. (We also hear that this works wonder for puffiness under the eyes too!)
Ever walked in to your friends house and she’s laying on a bag of frozen peas? Or an even funnier life hack? We’d love to hear them!
